Denatured Alcohol by onetenor Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 days ago
I wish someone would do Jetex again I loved them. Specially on little flat plate jet boats I used to make with balsa sheet. Real skimmers they were .👍 Yes Doug I remember them and a bigger posher version that sat in the hearth or in the actual fireplace with a sack stuffed up the flue to stop heat losses up the chimney. A bowl fire I think they were called and I don't think they were pumped up

Finally it's completed by Rod Commander   Posted: 1 month ago
Six months ago I drew up the plans for my Jet Sprint boat and at last it is completed and ready for its first test run Very happy with results so far so hope it performs well on the water Have leak and ballast tested it and all good so here's hoping for a successful first run up the river Has been a real challenge at times but well worth it and a lot of satisfaction and fun making it I have named it "Rapid Hoppa " so I hope you all like it Will post a video of its on the water performance as soon as I can

Red Cat hydroplane by SimpleSailor Sub-Lieutenant   Posted: 1 month ago
Hi. It is a scale model of a Formulaboats.com sponsord jet turbine powered hydroplane. I think this livery was from 2009. They can be seen racing on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A4HPB4PtT0k .As for the burning out motors that is sorted. Nothing to do with my cooling system but the unit I had from Hobby King seems to have a number of complaints about them burning out. So replaced it with a different model. HK have been very good and replaced all 3 failures. I will keep the latest replacement for another boat.

Seabreacher by Dave M Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Steve Plenty of suggestions being made. I use waterjets and you should be aware of the max revs quoted by the manufacturer. You exceed this figure at your own risk. I agree with the previous comments regarding brushless delivering far more power if powered by Lipo. Ballast is a crucial part of the equation and the Sea Breacher has a large volume of air in its hull which makes it very buoyant. Like a sub perhaps some form of ballast tank that can be vented may be worth considering. You really need to speak with someone who is into submersibles as they have the experience and knowledge of how best to proceed. The Model Boat Convention is on next weekend and they sometimes have submariner modellers in attendance. Good luck Dave

Seabreacher by Captain-Steve Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi I have a 36 inch model of a seabreacher dolphin boat powered by a 50mm waterjet and a 800 brushed motor on an 11.5v lipo.I have not got it onto the water yet and just wondered if anybody with a jetboat could say if this setup is powerfull enough

Hello from the center of Europe, I hold my fingers. I have been following the construction of the hull from the beginning and it really did. Great work, I'm looking forward to a video on how this fast car will go. Just keep going.👍👍👍😉

Ps. Rod, I love Kawasaki green colouring. Hopefully, there will be a contrasting bit of decoration somewhere on the craft 😎
